07/20/19 – Romans 6:1-23; Psalm 16:1-11; Proverbs 19:20-21
Proverbs 19: 21 Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.
I find it interesting that in yesterday’s reading from Romans we discussed God’s timing & will versus our own. And we see that same concept today in the above passage from Proverbs. Today’s passage also reminds me of the inspired word in James.
James 4: 13 Now listen, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business and make money.” 14 Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes. 15 Instead, you ought to say, “If it is the Lord’s will, we will live and do this or that.”
